Erasmus,

Sic oportet ad librum, presertim miscellanei geperis, legendum accedere lectorem, ut solet ad convivium conviva
civilis. Codrivator annititur omnibus satisfacere ; et tamen si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non
respondeat, et bie et ille urbane dissimulant, et alia fercula probant, ne quid contristent convivatorem.

A reader should sit down to a book, especially of the miscellaneous kind, as a well-behaved visitor does to a ban.
qnet. The master of the feast exerts himself to satisfy his guests ; but if, after all his care and pains, something should
appear on the table that does not suit this or that person's taste, they politely pass it over without notice, and commend
seker disbes, that they may not distress a kind host.
